MOBILE, Ala. – Federal authorities say an Alabama man has been charged with making a threat against President Joe Biden in a call to the White House.

A criminal complaint filed by the U.S. Secret Service alleges that 37-year-old John Andrew Bazor Jr., of Mobile, called the White House switchboard on July 10 and made the threat.

WALA-TV reported prosecutors on Wednesday had asked a judge to order a psychiatric evaluation to determine whether Bazor is competent to stand trial.

Bazor’s attorney, Gordon Armstrong, said he supports that request.

The criminal complaint says Secret Service agents tracked Bazor to a Mobile motel on Monday.
